How To Find My Birth Certificate
A birth certificate is a vital document that gives information about an individual. The certificate can refer to the original document given upon birth or a certified copy of the original. There are two ways in which you can get a birth certificate: as a child and as an adult.
You still have to follow state guidelines even when you order online. You may have to send in additional documents such as a signed release or driver's license to verify your identity. Many sites allow you to fax or mail these documents instead of transmitting them over the internet. Unfortunately, you can't get free copies of birth certificates anywhere - not even online. Because all states charge for these records, there is no way a third party website can get them to you for free. Because of this, plan to spend at least $25.00 to order a birth certificate online.
